Penguin pleated cartridge filters are an alternative to string wound or spun molded filters. These filters are economical, multi-use, premium quality products that are available in various micron ratings. The filter media is composed of continuous self-bonded polypropylene, nylon or PTFE microfibers which is manufactured by a unique process that controls the uniformity and density of the continuous microfibers. There are no resin binders that can break down and leach out or permit the typical problems of channeling and media migration. The filter matrix of fine diameter fibers and large open areas allows for superior flow rates at low-pressure drops. Penguin pleated cartridge filters are available in FDA approved material and various sub-micron and absolute particle retention ratings.

 

Style D – Nominal Polypropylene Media
The Penguin Nominal Polypropylene pleated cartridge is an economical, multi-use, premium depth type filter that is available in retention ratings from 1 to 50 microns. They are specifically designed to provide highly efficient particle removal in aqueous and non-aqueous liquids. The unique combinations of cartridge design and media selection contribute to their superior flow rate, lower pressure drop, exceptional contaminant holding capacity and longer operational life
